Collaborative Research Area for the Consortium on Early Childhood Intervention

The Consortium on Early Childhood Intervention (CECI) CRA brings together behavioral scientists with interests in developing, conducting, and evaluating systematic, comprehensive, evidence-based, experiential early interventions carried out within a developmental framework. CECI focuses on diverse populations including children at risk for developmental problems due to biological and/or environmental factors, those with established developmental delays or disabilities, and those with autism spectrum disorder. Members of this CRA address a wide range of topics emphasizing the effects of planned interventions and naturally occurring environmental influences on all aspects of children’s development, especially those affecting children’s cognitive, social-emotional, social cognitive, and language development. Special topics of interest include differential sensitivity to intervention, parent stress and its association with intervention approaches and effectiveness, new measures for behavioral phenotyping, trauma and developmental delay, peer relationships and inclusion, and leading edge biomarkers of special relevance to behavioral scientists. The integration of developmental, intervention, and implementation science during the early childhood period provides an overarching framework for this CRA.
